What is the difference between Rounded Corners vs. Square Corners?
Rounded Corners have a slight radius as indicated in comparison below. Frankly the technology has improved so much that the difference between the two is largely aesthetic. It used to be that the rounded corners improved product life but this is no longer the case. So you’ll be fine with either rounded or square corners. We currently offer just one size with rounded corners and it is 24 x 6 inches.

How is the solution priced?

Please review instructions and video below.

Required: Roller

Step 1. Clean stair surface and hands – surfaces and hands must be free from dirt and oils. Use rubbing alcohol to clean. The alcohol will remove any oils and give you clean dry surfaces in minutes. It is very important that surfaces are completely dry and surface temperature must be above 60˚F. See helpful installation and removal tips here.

Step 2. Peel backing paper about three inches to expose adhesive and place No-slip Tape about half an inch from non -curved edge of step. Apply roller pressure to remove any trapped bubble. Repeat every 3 inches until backing paper is completely removed and No-slip Tape is secure on stair tread. Do not install No-slip Tape on the very edge of step. Doing so will reduce product life. Install only on a flat surface. Use a Roller to activate adhesive. Rolling will also permit the sub-surface color to transmit through our "Clear" non-slip material and create near-transparency.

Note: Use our optional Edge Sealer if you have extremely high traffic or the environment has low humidity.

Parallel Strips Application (optional): You can achieve more surface area coverage by installing two or more strips in parallel and about an inch apart. Our research revealed that the ball of your foot will often find a landing between the parallel strips and give you superior non-slip confidence when engaging the stairs. However a single strip per step will also provide adequate traction.

How long with the No-slip Tapes solution last? Will the edges roll-up over time?
Average life is 5 years. Environmental conditions can reduce product life. For example, the presence of small contaminants like oils on the stairs during installation may reduce or prevent adhesion. Low humidity may also prematurely dry-up the adhesive. We recommend the Edge Sealer in low humidity environments.

Can I remove No-slip Tapes later?
Yes our solution balances safety, ease of application, and removal. On most surfaces you should be able to hand-peel, with some effort, to remove. You may request Free Samples prior to ordering No-slip Tapes. We also ship free samples along with all orders. See helpful installation and removal tips here.

How do I clean No-slip Tapes?
Clean No-slip Tapes with a damp cloth.

What sizes are available?
Pre-cut strips lengths range from 10 inches to 52 inches. Max roll length is 720 inches.

How to Order?
Please measure the length of each step and subtract 2 inches.

Should I buy the pre-cut strips or rolls?
We recommend our pre-cut strips for ease of installation. However if you have many steps, and a good pair of scissors for cutting, then a roll of No-slip Tapes may offer a cost savings. So price both and compare.
